Roundtable luncheon to feature discussion about suicide
In the wake of the Robin Williams tragedy, the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy will sponsor a roundtable discussion focusing on suicide at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 9 in the Miley Hall private dining room.
Dr. John Tawa, assistant professor of psychology, will lead a discussion about suicide geared primarily for a college-aged population and supporting members of the campus community.
Tawa will begin with a brief presentation about risk factors associated with suicide, psychological correlates of suicidality, and early intervention and safety planning strategies. He will then answer questions and provide room for processing about the recent Robin Williams tragedy and related experiences.
Roundtable discussions are open to Salve Regina students, faculty and staff, and lunch is provided. As space is extremely limited, those interested in attending should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
